Wallene's birthday is on September 4th. I have been trying to come up with a surprise for her. I was ticking off all the things she loves including sharks [too toothy] whales [like where would I put that?] all things anime [gives me a wicked headache] and having the added bonus of sucking up her beloved collection of those
Obviously she will receive the requisite cards from family but since her birthday falls mere days [two to be exact] before the start of school she will be sorely lacking in simple birthday wishes from friends at school. So.....
I thought of you guys. My tadpoles. [See? I really have no shame when it comes to my kids. Ever. hee]
Would any of you consider sending a note in the mail to her? It doesn't even have to be a birthday card - just a piece of paper thrown in an envie with a stamp. .44 cents and a few minutes of your time. Or even a .28 cent stamped postcard [you can just cut out a piece of a cereal box and write on it, stamp and mail - I do it all the time -! Thanks Jeannie for the suggestion on postcards!] Wallene will be so thrilled.
I won't allow her to read my blog this week so she won't know and it will be a total surprise. Think that will be fun?
Oh and she is turning the big 1-3! Yes, like having a newly minted 21 year old, 18 year old and now a 13 year old didn't throw me into spasms. All within two months of one another no less. GAH! [Did I mention all of them were our girls? Yeah - the boys are just the boring 19 and 20 this year. YAWN] ha!
If you could, I would greatly appreciate it. If you email me at skippyaveo AT gmail.com I will happily send along her real name and address, but if you want to address them to Wallene - the postman will get it. :)
*Contrary to popular belief I did not do this on purpose. And yes [Linda B.] I did open up the vacuum cleaner and get them out. And wash them. So there.
